About this book

Provides a look at how development of intensive livestock production, particularly hogs, has affected human health with respect to zoonotic diseases primarily transmitted by food but also by water, air and occupational activity.

The authors of the book [Guan and Holley] ! have done an excellent job of assembling scientific information that describes the relationship of manure management issues to human health problems in Canada and other major hog producing countries. (J. Lloyd Spencer, DVM, MS, PhD, Research Scientist, Animal Disease Research Institute, Food Inspection Agency, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada) "Hog Manure Management, the Environment and Human Health provides a current look at how development of intensive livestock production, particularly hogs, has affected human health with respect to zoonotic diseases primarily transmitted by food but also by water, air, and occupational activity. ! The book will serve as a scientific resource for both researchers and students and be used by legislative policy makers at the municipal level in formulating regional guidelines for manure handling practices, and by industry association s in providing guidance to the agricultural community." - Food Trade Review, December 2003
